Oddball rock and ‘Freakscene’ showcase WRONG Festival has announced its return to the Liverpool Docklands for a second year. Cult Cardiff rockers Future Of The Left, which features members of Mclusky and Million Dead, will headline next year’s celebration of all things weird and wonderful on Saturday, 28 April.
The one-day festival, organised by Liverpool-based record label Loner Noise, takes place across three venues, the Invisible Wind Factory, the North Shore Troubadour and DROP The Dumbulls Gallery. More than 30 bands will be on show from the early afternoon through to the small hours of the morning.
Joining them are the superb post-hardcore outfit The St Pierre Snake Invasion – who are worth the £15 entry fee alone – rising instrumental post-rockers Alpha Male Tea Party, Nottingham alt-rock trio Kagoule and Liverpool’s own psychedelic space rockers Mugstar.
Also on the early announcements list are Japanese Krautrock legend Damo Suzuki, Swansea heavy rockers Hark, London loud rockers Hey Colossus, melodic post-hardcore newcomers Milo’s Planes, Nottingham ‘midlife crisis’ rockers Grey Hairs and underground supergroup Sex Swing.
Festival organiser Michael Edward said: “I think the success of last year can be summed up for me by a question that Dobbs from The Hyena Kill asked me just after their set: ‘Is this the best thing you’ve ever done?’ The answer was a resounding yes. It still feels crazy that it was such a success, and having seen weirder underground music start to get some more recognition in Liverpool has been a wonderful reward.
“This year we’re building on that foundation and bringing some real legends to Liverpool. I want this kind of music to become part of the city’s identity.”
Wrong Festival looks to have once again tied together an extremely talented pool of up-and-coming, exciting acts and, with more to be announced, this should be a great day. Furthermore, tickets are now available for as little as £15 here.
